    Default Trump Is Trying to Make NAFTA Even Worse. Itís Time to Throw Sand in the Gears.

    So is this his idea of renegotiating NAFTA? The guy is so completely dishonest and this is what we are stuck with for four years. He will dismantle everything that is good for the American worker.
    NAFTAís legacy is marred by lost jobs, lower wages, increased inequality and a litany of environmentally destructive practices. While the people who gathered in Mexico City have long opposed NAFTA for its pro-corporate bent, a consensus emerged that President Trump and his team are cooking up something even worse.

    Two questions follow from this judgment: What can we do to stop Trump, and how can we use the moment to challenge the powerful interests that he represents?
    But now, in an act of political judo, Trump is trying to use the same anti-establishment, pro-American rhetoric from his campaign to craft a neoliberal NAFTA renegotiation that will include everything demanded in the recently scuttled TPPóand more. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, as well as others in Trumpís administration, have been surprisingly straightforward about these intentions.
    A Trump-led renegotiation will mean a strengthening of heinous Investor-State Dispute Settlement (ISDS) mechanisms, which allow corporations to sue governments that ďinfringeĒ on profit-making opportunities, for example, by daring to introduce anti-tobacco legislation. It will mean stronger copyright and intellectual property laws, in case youíre not already spending enough on your medications. It will also mean further privatization of the internet, greater corporate control of e-commerce, and most likely a new broadside against net neutrality.

    Dreams......I guess one would have to settle on which agenda they can live with? Personally I prefer the agenda that will keep your Union negotiated retirement checks showing up in your mailbox every month. I sure as hell won't find any help with that from a right leaning site that does nothing but promote a Union busting agenda......
